My mom made this pie for us at home and now I make it for my family and most of all for my hubby who has been a chocolate lover all his life. Very versatile recipe and easy to make. Hope you enjoy it also!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bake pie shell.
2
Combine above ingredients and cook on high until it begins to boil, turn to medium until thick. Pour into pie shell after cooling slightly.
3
When completely cooled make egg white meringue sealing edges and bake until as brown as desired.
4
I sometimes use cool whip as topping because my children never liked meringue. If using cool whip keep refrigerated.

Makes 1 large or 2 small pies.

TIPS:
I use a whisk to stir while cooking and cooling enough to put in pie shells to make consistency smooth.
This also makes a delicious creamy vanilla sauce that I use for banana pudding. Just leave out cocoa, cook to desired consistency for pudding and pour over wafers and bananas.

**To make coconut pies,(leave out cocoa) add 1 to 1-1/2 cups (or as much as you like) coconut, change vanilla to 1/2 teaspoon and add 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract.
Add coconut after cooking and I also sprinkle coconut on top of meringue or cool whip.
